One To Watch - Sport Relief’s Top Dog
Tuesday, 21 January 2014 | D for Dog
Dog lovers have a treat in store on BBC Two this March. A brand new game show, Sport Relief’s Top Dog, will see teams of dogs and their owners compete in a variety of challenges that will test their talents and physical agility.
In each of the twelve knockout rounds, two teams will compete for the chance to make it through to the semi-finals, where a grand final awaits and the chance to be crowned champion. Teams will be made up of one celebrity team captain and their dog, one professional dog and their handler and a domestic pet dog and their owner. All will be putting their best paw forward in the hope of taking home the title.
The new series will be broadcast in the run up to Sport Relief weekend, which takes place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. The exact dates that the show will be aired are yet to be confirmed so keep your eye on the telly schedules and look out for “Sport Relief’s Top Dog”. It sounds like it is going to be great viewing.
